[prMac.com] La Jolla, California - Extendmac is proud to announce Flow 1.1, an update to their award-winning FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and .Mac client for Mac OS X. Presenting a gorgeous user interface, Flow streamlines both transferring and editing files by leveraging high-speed connections.
Armed with the belief that file-transfer should be both powerful and elegant, Flow brings the best of the Mac to managing server files and folders. By integrating with the latest OS X technologies, like Quicklook, Flow makes working remotely every bit as intuitive and natural as working locally with the Finder.
After uploading a file, the URL to the file on the web can be automatically copied to the clipboard for easy sharing. Flow also includes a powerful integrated editor, as well as support for editing in an external application of the user's choice. Users may now specify a specific external editor to be used for a particular extension when editing externally.
When using the internal editor, code is colored for easier readability, and can be previewed using WebKit. Flow can suggest completions of HTML, CSS, and PHP elements, properties, and functions, respectively. To further enhance readability, Flow now includes "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono" as the default editor font.
Version 1.1 is a major update delivering many top-requested features, while substantially bettering both stability and polish. The application offers substantially better error-handling for all protocols, public iDisk support, as well as more secure WebDAV and MobileMe iDisk authentications.
Among Flow's most requested new features is the ability to browse a local disk from within the sidebar. This eliminates the necessity to interface with the Finder for uploads and downloads.
The new version of Flow also sports custom Public Keys for SFTP. Connect to an SFTP server without specifying a password, and Flow will allow the user to select a public key to connect with. Flow 1.1 now offers Multi-touch Support. Users with a multi-touch trackpad can now use swipe-gestures to navigate around in Flow. Swiping left and right will move back and forward. Swiping up and down will navigate to the parent directory, or enter the selected directory.
New Feature highlights include:
* Local Browsing in the Sidebar
* Custom External Editors
* Custom Public Keys for SFTP
* Public iDisk Support
* Substantially better error-handling for all protocols
